On Wednesdays we have to "dress nice" to school. Meaning we don't get to wear our normal jeans and a tee shirt, which is what I rock four days a week. I am trying to get use out of my nicer dresses that I save for a special occasion...then end up not wearing. Basically what I am saying is I need to stop worrying about saving dresses for maybe/possibly/theremightbeachance special occasions, and just start wearing them!
I bought this dress over two years ago for one of my wedding showers and I have maybe worn it three times. Yikes! I didn't want to wear it to school in fear of it getting ruined, but I think it is time I just start taking the plunge and wearing my 'so called' nicer items that never get worn.
As for this blazer, I got it over two year ago from Target on major sale. I want to say it was like $10. Major score. I am just waiting for the temperature to cool off so I can actually wear it outside instead of just bringing it to school to wear when I get cold.
- This week of school is kicking my butt. Getting into the swing of things is tough. Couple that with a sour stomach yesterday morning and I am ready for this weekend.
- Bachelor in Paradise, love. So much less crazy screaming, but just as much drama.
- We had Ikea Swedish Meatballs last night and they weren't half bad. Actually, I really loved them and Chris said, "You don't have to make this meal like every week...just every once in awhile." Noted.

I saw this on Pinterest and I just love it. I am going to tell it to my kiddos all year long. The joy that is yet to come is so, so sweet!
I also saw this on Pinterest and Chris audibly "awwww"ed. It was precious.
Saturday lounging on the couch with the fam. I have about 10 pictures like this on my phone, so it must have been a commercial break.
We have jalapenos people! Chris bought a jalapeno plant a couple months back and we had no expectations as to whether or not it would live. If we were betting people, we would have bet it would have died the day after we got it. We looked at it last weekend and what do ya know?! Four, yes FOUR little peppers are almost ready to be picked!

|Bag: Lily Jade here // Shoes: similar here // Pants: veryyy similar here|
I am always on the hunt for teacher pants. Now, you might ask what teacher pants are, so let me tell you. They are pants that, if ruined, you won't cry. They are cheap. They are comfortable. And, usually, they have a pattern or are a dark color to hide pen and marker stains.
When I came across these pants at Ross for $8.99, I knew I had to have them. I know the patterned pants are just a trend and, for all I know, they are so last year, but to this teacher, they are back in school for this semester!
Here is where I feel like you might get a little jealous. You might say, "You can have those nutso pants, but I want those shoes!" I don't blame you and when I tell you how much they cost, you might cry a few tears.
Ya'll, these shoes are Chinese Laundry (normally found at Nordstrom) and I found them at Ross for....$9.99. Not. Even. Kidding. I almost died when I saw the price tag. I thought that surely there was a mistake. Nope, no mistake. Just some really great shoe luck.
In other random news, this week Chris and I have been getting up at 4:40am to be at the gym by 5:00am. I know that is totally crazy, but knowing that when I get home, I don't need to go to the gym, is an amazing feeling. I am in my pj's by 4:30pm and in bed around 9:00pm.
My classroom is coming along great! I can't wait to show how I have changed it around this year!
I am still trying to get over the fact that August is almost over. Eyyeyeyyey!
And one last thing!! Don't forget to come back on September 1st and link up your dresses for The Lovely Lookbook!! You can read all about The Lovely Lookbook here.
